Whitley Desk is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 55.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love, love, love this beautiful desk!! I just love my new desk! I am redecorating my den using my new Whitley Desk as the focal point & it just looks gorgeous! It is unique & stands out from a regular typical desk & it is big & roomy for my desktop & keyboard. I would highly recommend this desk to anyone. It was very easy to assemble & took only about 30 minutes. I purchased in the creamy white color & it just brightens up the room. I just love the choice I made after shopping for several months for the right desk.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this desk well made, easy to put together; only really need a second pair of hands to lift it bc it's so heavy; but I put this together myself (petite female) Classy, durable, high quality. Warning, drawers aren't very deep... but it's so beautiful, had to keep. The only thing I'd change is the depth of the drawers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Divine Desk I am very pleased with the Whitley Desk for my space. It was daunting at first to put together. But after getting started with the tools provided I did not even have to ask for help from my husband. It is very heavy so I did have to ask for help to move it. The desk in my opinion is WHITE more so than ivory with minimum distressing. A beautiful addition to our home.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from CLASSIC LOOKING DESK This gorgeous desk arrived so quickly. It was easy to put together and looks so fabulous in my black and white office. It is very well made and has classic lines that look like a desk worth at least double the amount that I paid. I usually do not do submit ratings, but this desk was well worth my time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Elegant, practical and excellent quality! The desk was shipped in a timely manner. I was impressed with how well it was packed. It is heavy, solid and has a large work space. I am very pleased with my purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A nice, solid piece of furniture I am happy with the quality and functionality of this desk. It is exactly as described. It was easy to assemble and came with small disposable tools to assemble it with. Assembly was simple; however it will require two people as it is heavy. Delivery company is not authorized to assemble. Possibly it could be arranged for an extra fee.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous! Looks just like the catalog photo. Looks exactly like I anticipated - beautiful. It does require some assembly that takes two people to do it. This desk is well made and heavy. My husband cannot lift heavy objects so I enlisted the help of a friend to get it out of the box and put it together for us. It is packaged well but one of the 2 decorative buttons that go on each end of the desk was crushed in shipping. Have ordered a replacement part and did not need to send in the part that was defective, so that was a nice touch. I am completely satisfied with this lovely desk.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Nice I have been wanting this desk for awhile now, I finally purchased it and so glad I did. I should have not waited so long. Assemble was easy but needed two people to help turn desk upright after assemble.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Writer looking for the "perfect place to work" I was skeptical about ordering a desk from an on line source...desk is beautiful! Construction is solid and well made. Assembly was relatively easy with one exception...holes in leg did not line up and my husband had to drill to enlarge. Customer Service adjusted the cost to offset this issue. Very elegant writing desk!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I Found a Drawer Organizer that Fits This! High quality desk. Husband and father in law put it together in half an hour or less. Thinking of covering the top with glass, but so far the finish is holding up just fine after 6 mos. I bought this to work with the cream-colored Tuscan collection book cases and file drawers and it is a lovely match. Biggest concern, as many other have, was the depth of the drawers. Pens, small staplers, scissors, paperclips, etc fit fine, but I hate having all that rolling around in the drawer and none of our current drawer organizers fit in the shallow drawer. I finally found an organizer at a major bed and bath store that fits great! Its a small, clear, plastic, expandable interdesign drawer organizer that is made for makeup, but works nicely here. 1.25 inches high. Finding the organizer took this from 4/5 stars to 5/5 stars for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This Product is Gorgeous When I unpacked my Whitley Desk I was so pleasantly surprised at the size and detail of the workmenship put into this elegant piece. The scrolled legs are magnificient!!! I can't wait to show it off to family and friends. I will be using it in a beautiful room to make lovely family albums, wrap beautiful presents and write heartfelt letters. I'm sure I will enjoy it for as long as I can and then hand it down to someone special.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely desk I am very happy with this desk. It is sturdy, the drawers slide easily and it was easy to put together. It is heavy and I did need two people to lift it. I bought the ivory one and the color has a very slight yellow to it. I like that you can see the brush strokes in it too. Overall, quite lovely.
Date published: 2012-09-12
Rated 5 out of 5 by from WONDERFUL feeling to own this desk! This desk is so substantial and well made...everyone should own one! The antique white finish is perfect in my house and it has so much room on top for all your needs. The drawers are shallow, but fits my bills and paper, pen, calculater etc. I have my white laptop on it and two small saddle stools underneath. It's a GEM of a desk and I'm so happy I found it. Was EASY to put the legs on and came very soon after ordering it. BUY ONE!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful, Sturdy Desk This desk works really well for me. It took 2 of us just one hour to assemble. It looks exactly as I hoped it would and fits well in my living room. I wanted a broad, flat surface, upon which I could do work (with laptop and external monitor and mouse), wrap presents, write cards, and more. This beautiful desk satisfies those desires and more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Desk and Work Space This desk is as lovely as I had hoped, and we love the large workspace it provides. The two drawers are perfect for storing small items and several project folders.
Date published: 2012-04-01
Rated 5 out of 5 by from well worth the wait Had been waiting for 3 months for this desk. But I am so glad I was patient... It is beautiful! Substantial enough for my space, but the lines are graceful and soft. I wondered if my husband would love the antique cream color, but it looks so beautiful in our space, he agrees with me. It took us about 25 minutes to put it together- very simple instructions. And it is very sturdy. Just perfect- I could not be happier!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pleasantly Pleased! This is the perfect desk for my personal home office. The style is classic but not boring. The dark finish looks very rich and compliments well with a variety of accent pieces. I did purchase a custom glass top to insure the surface is protected.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptional Quality I've been looking for a desk for awhile now. This desk had caught my eye. I have purchased before from this site & was impressed withthe quality of my other items so I knew I wouldn't be disappointed. This had to be the easiest assembly job I've ever done & I've put together lots of furniture before. My only negative is that the drawers are rather shallow....can't fit too much. I would recommend this desk still....Top quality!
Date published: 2011-11-28
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Desk I just love this desk! Quality is nice, easy to assemble, it's the perfect working desk! I was worried that the "shallow drawers" would be a problem, but it's really not. (if in the future the drawer could be just deep enough to accommodate a stapler and tape dispenser - it would be ideal).
Date published: 2011-11-23
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely perfect I love this piece and I love its price. I bought the walnut finish. The color is rich and the piece is well styled with a solid and sturdy feel. It looks so great in my bedroom! I highly recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Piece of Furniture! I sent an email to customer service the day the desk arrived! What a gorgeous piece of furniture. Packaged with the utmost care. I can't say enough about this company, one of the best mail order companies for good quality out there.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well made, high quality desk We are beyond satisfied with this purchase. We had never purchased anything from Ballard Designs before so were a little apprehensive of what the quality would be. The desk is as pretty, very solidly constructed, and well made. When it arrived, one of the legs was damaged, but the company quickly remedied the situation and was wonderful to deal with. Excellent quality product and wonderful customer service. Look forward to ordering again from Ballard soon!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I got this in the cream and it is absolutely a classic beauty. The lines of the desk are exquisite, it was easy to assemble and very sturdy. I'm an Interior Designer and VERY picky. This was for myself. You can't go wrong.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Perfect! I just received this desk and it is more beautiful in person than it is in the catlog. It is spectacular quality and the design is stunning.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful desk... I purchased a Genevieve Desk 6 years ago and though I love it I found that I needed a larger surface to work off of...using a monitor and laptop both for work. I fell in love with the style of the Whitley desk...I love the style and lines of this desk. I purchased mine just after Christmas and couldn't wait to put it in my office. The only negative is the drawers...they are so very shallow that you cannot store much. I was worried about damaging the top surface to I had a custom glass top made...just to make sure everything looks nice. I would highly recommend this desk as long as you have other storage options for your "stuff." Sidenote: the Genevieve has much better drawers...with full-extension metal slides. The Whitley doesn't have that style of drawer hardward...oh well...
Date published: 2019-02-12
Rated 4 out of 5 by from solid desk with great big space The only reason I drop this to 4 stars is that the drawers feel very cheap and don't slide very nicely. No metal drawers slides and they are so thin that there is not really room to store much of anything in them. If you don't need drawer space and like the leg clearance, this is a great desk.
Date published: 2018-08-30
Rated 4 out of 5 by from this product has great style I bought this desk for the style. I give it the highest rating for that. On the negative side are the drawers, they are too skinny and the top of the desk is a bit rough. I put a glass top on and it upgraded this desk tremendously. I also bought the desk on sale, this helped some with the expense of the glass top.
Date published: 2017-01-30
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty and spacious except for drawer This desk arrived promptly and well-packaged from Ballard. It was pretty easy to assemble and probably took less than 30 minutes but it would be very difficult to do alone for a female because the parts are so large. I was glad to have help. The desk is very pretty and basically is true to the photos. I got the antique white color. My only issue with the design is the small depth of the two drawers. They're basically big enough to fit some pencils laid flat and perhaps some sticky notes. It will be fine but I would have liked a little desk storage for files or paperwork.
